Feature #8707: Hash#reverse_each
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8707

Currently, {}.reverse_each calls Enumerable#reverse_each.
It will make array and its size can be large.
I made Hash#reverse_each to avoid array creation and performance improvement.

benchmark:

require "benchmark"

Size = 10000
HASH = Hash[*Array.new(Size) {|i| [i, true] }.flatten]

Benchmark.bmbm do |x|
  x.report("Hash#reverse_each") do
    300.times do
      HASH.reverse_each {|a, b|}
    end
  end
end

result:

trunk(r42256):
